How to make Lemon Bundt Cake
Ingredients you’ll need:
- cake flour: see my recipe notes below on how to make your own!
- baking powder
- baking soda
- zest from 1 lemon
- large eggs
- caster/granulated sugar
- lemon extract
- vegetable oil
For the icing:
- icing/powdered sugar
- lemon extract
- heavy/double cream
To make this cake, simply whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and lemon zest. Set aside.
Whisk together the eggs. Add the sugar, and whisk until combined. Add the lemon extract and vegetable oil, and whisk until combined. Mix in the dry ingredients, alternating with the buttermilk.
Pour the batter into a greased 10-inch bundt pan and bake for 45 – 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean with moist crumbs.
Let the cake cool in the pan for 15 minutes before removing and letting cool completely on a wire rack.
For the icing, whisk together the icing sugar, lemon extract, and heavy cream. Add more icing sugar if too runny, or more cream if too thick. The icing should be fairly thick, but pourable.
Drizzle over the cooled cake, and serve.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
